    Dragon Tattoo. For me, that one stands on its own merits, even though it so perfectly complemented the rich texture of the film.

    Stuff like Waves and Bird Box work well, but that's probably not what you meant by "album". You kind of have to be in a certain mood. As far as "traditional":

    The Social Network (still the easiest, although...)
    Watchmen (all of this works really well, even with the dialogue clips. Volume 2 is especially cohesive)
    The Vietnam War (seems like a great middle ground for the score work)

    Gone Girl (this is my favorite "abnormal weather" score. This always hits me differently)

    This. With exception of Immigrant song, which is garbage.

    How do you guys get so amped up about the film and tv scores?

    For me, if direction is given, and the music is made for particular scenes, it's sort of compromised: it belongs to the movie. The director told TR and AR to write it a certain way.

    I can't get around this.

    I'm hoping someone can change my mind.
    I believe with The Social Network, Fincher gave hardly any, if any direction at all for the most part. I'd say this is the way with most respected film scorers also, it remains very much their art and that is why they are chosen for their projects.

    We tend to mix and match music to fit how we feel. Sometimes we even do it with music that doesn't fit our mood just to create a juxtaposition of feelings. I know when I've been writing stuff that requires a certain level of anxiety or angst that I have to throw on something aggressive to get me in the right frame of mind.

    The Social Network is a good start.

    Dragon Tattoo is the “most NIN like” of the earlier ones IMHO and the music fit the movie a lot better than TSN. After Gone Girl pretty much stopped listening to the scores, lack of vocals and percussion just started to bore me a bit. It’s not for everyone.

    +1 for Immigrant Song. Think it’s a great cover.

    "A Minute to Breathe" and "The Way It Used to Be" notwithstanding?

    Agreeded but The Vietnam War sucked me in, probably because I've watched the entire documentary series 4 times so I'm pretty familiar with the music.

    edit:I've been a huge Ken Burns fan since I was a kid and watched Baseball and The Civil War on PBS.

    Yessir, I think people are sleeping on The Vietnam War. As I stated before, it's a great "middle ground" for the score work. I'm not really sure how Dragon Tattoo would make the best album, even if it is your favorite... it's almost 3 hours long. It's like saying SAW II is the best Aphex Twin album for new people to get in to. Think about it...

    Not familiar with the songs, I honestly really did stop paying attention to the score stuff after trying to get into Gone Girl. I know they’re doing a Pixar film and curious to see how that turns out so I’ll probably attempt to listen to that or at least watch the movie.

    Watchmen and Vietnam War can stand all on their own, are very interesting to listen to. Or even just pull a few tracks of of each you connect with and make a playlist.

    I love Four Enclosed Walls, so much tension in this song, I just love the way it builds (Everytime they use it in the doc, it's really ramps up that atmosphere too).

    I would be devastatingly disappointed if this was a thing and it came to St. Louis. A decision this bad would likely negatively affect my view on nine inch nails forever and would be a horrifying tour to do near the twilight of his touring ability to perform the harder to sing songs.

    Lets let him do these songs when he's 65 and can't sing happiness in slavery anymore.

    Ghosts, The Slip, and Year Zero were done by a user named demo.

    Without the Hollywood cred, they don't get in the Hall of Fame today. Much as I hate to say it, I feel like there is part of this that is true otherwise I wouldn't say such a thing here. It's a bit more of a far-flung example but I am sure there was thinking at the time that Black Sabbath was inducted, it was partly because of the success of Ozzy having a successful reality TV show.

    That Radio City show was so amazing... The sound quality in that venue blew me away.

    The album version of The Fragile (song) is just okay.

    Reminder that "Sunspots" is still a terrible song.

    I always think of Meathead's animation of Trent vacuuming during that song.
